Description Andrej Nemec 2017-08-31 14:49:27 UTC
The setup_group function in elf.c in the Binary File Descriptor (BFD) library (aka libbfd), as distributed in GNU Binutils 2.29, allows  attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via a group section that is too small.
